I’ll be honest here. I’m getting really confused with all the characters and series that Melissa Foster has. She has spin-offs of spin-offs and really, they are basically the same to me. So I am struggling to find what makes each series unique other than the setting or characters.
This book is part of The Bradens series and is part of the larger Love in Bloom too. (Do you see what I mean when I say it gets confusing?) Another thing that kept throwing me off was the hero and the heroine. I don’t know why but I kept reading Treat’s name as Trent and kept thinking Max was a guy. Maybe that’s just the pre-wiring of my brain, but every time their names were mentioned, I got confused.
Apart from that, the actual writing isn’t bad. I always enjoy Foster’s writing style. It’s always has a great pace and dialogue but for this one, I also kind of wished that there was a better focus. With everything else that is going on, it kind of makes it hard for me to focus on the couple and then you lose the interest when they aren’t the main point.
So, I’m hoping Foster simplifies things in her series. It’s great to have such a large cast and various spin-offs, but when your genre is small-town romance, the world doesn’t feel so cozy with so many extra things going on.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
